The root gnome login should be discouraged by a warning and an ugly bright red
background instead of wallpaper, if they proceed.

Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-03-06 20:11:10 UTC
definitely.  Or possibly even better, just disallow it entirely.

Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-04-18 18:22:54 UTC
Let's punt for now, and drop root when policykit lands and gets adopted.

Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-10-06 20:56:39 UTC
Yea, I think Jon turned the key last weekish.
